FDA invites developers to showcase
their cutting-edge technologies to FDA scientists in
FDA Webinar Series on Alternative Methods
Read about the activities FDA scientists are undertaking to spur the development of new regulatory approaches that can help improve predictivity--and potentially replace, reduce and/or refine animal testing.
FDA's mission is to protect and advance public health by helping to speed innovations that provide our nation with safe and effective medical products and that keep our food safe. The Agency achieves this by applying the latest technology and science-based standards to the regulatory challenges presented by drugs, biologics (vaccines, blood products, cell and gene therapy products, and tissues), medical devices, food additives, and, since 2009, tobacco. > Read more
